Having never built a PC before, I only heard about how much of a pain non-full modular PSUs can be. The PSU was again very well built and aesthetically pleasing. I really liked the color scheme even if it doesn't match my case. Snapping cables in was a breeze and it seems to run very cool.
It doesn't blow up.
this is a super power supply. i know its overkill for this kind of rig. because the max watt of this build is 502W. but i wantet it for later on. for any further upgrades. maybe a crossfire wi the 280X or i have in plan to buy the R9 295X2 still from sapphire. thats why :)
I went overboard on the power supply, but it's just in case I decide to upgrade later.
Best psu I have ever had. Fan never kicks on so its really quiet the fact that it is fully modular is amazing for cable management.
First PC part i bought for this computer back in August. Was so excited about opening it i ripped open its actual box without thinking. Anyways, what can i say? its pretty power efficient and leaves me lots of room to grow if i want to SLI. Also its as quiet as a mouse. I'm not sure it has ramped up once since i bought it honestly. I got it back in August for 100 and then a 20.00 rebate.
Bought mine refurbished. Not sure if the connector stiffness and troubles I had is in ALL of these PSUs or just mine. My total system draw is like <450w, so this PSU's fans almost never come on. Love it.
I've had this PSU for over 3 years now and its still going strong. Never once had an issue. The only thing I don't like about it is the lack of sleeved cables.
Energy efficient and plenty of power. Also, it was on sale.
